Microsoft has been working on Windows 11 23H2 for quite some time now, and it looks like they’re getting ready for the final release.

The latest update has been “Microsoft-Windows-UpdateTargeting-ClientOS-SV2Moment4-EKB” and “Microsoft-Windows-23H2Enablement-EKB”. 23H2Enablement-Package” enablement package and the same pattern has been seen before in Windows 10 Build 19045. This means that Win11 only needs a very small enablement package to turn on the new 23H2 feature.
Microsoft is promising to introduce a number of new enhancements to Windows 11 23H2, such as improvements to File Explorer, including a Recommended Files section, a new title bar, more Mica, Fluent Design, and an upgraded search feature, among others.
